Use our pilot plant to streamline scale-up.

 Faster to tabletop.

​Using line production time to scale up bench-top research and development just doesn't make sense - it wastes time and money. Ingredion pilot plant speeds your products to market while reducing costs. Companies working with us on scale-up projects have seen great results from our pilot plant, where comprehensive facilities and proven experts focus intensely on your challenges.

Application experts are on site for immediate consultation. Experts in dairy, bakery, candy, soups, sauces, gravies, dressings, batter and breading, pasta and snack foods are waiting to help your company in taking a bench-top formulation to the next level.
